R5Y7: A Bicycle Gallery
R5Y7 was a gallery space in Los Angeles’ “Bicycle District” in east Hollywood (during the Bike Kitchen/O20 era 2005-2015). We hosted curated shows and workshops that invited the city of Los Angeles to appreciate the experience and culture of bicycles. Shows included: Bikes in the House, Ghost Bikes L.A. and The Passage Ride. 2012-2013
L.A. Bike Trains
The internationally recognized commuter program that built a network of routes, trained and insured ride leaders called conductors that helped teach and lead bike commuters across LA county. 2013-2016
The Los Angeles Bicycle Festival
Held in 2014 at the Los Angeles LGBT Center and sponsored by AIDS/Lifecycle, we brought CicLAvia, Finish The Ride, East Side Riders, LACBC, LA Bike Trains, local bike shops, brands, the Bike Kitchen co-op, all together for a day of demos, workshops, DJs, raffles and a surprise visit from KTLA-5’s TV crew covering the event.
In 2016, it got a lot bigger at Grand Park in front of LA City Hall.
Filmed By Bike: LA
We hosted 3 years of Portland’s traveling Filmed By Bike festival at Boomtown Brewery in DTLA. Doug Olsen, from Rick and Morty curated a short program of experimental animation the first year and Mary Metcalf, the first woman to finish the Tour the Divide was a guest speaker. We hosted a mini-festival each year bringing local bike companies, like Roadrunner Bags and MMFG before the movies and enjoyed seeing the attendance go from 37% female in our first year to 56% in our 3rd. A very big thank you to Boomtown for hosting and Josh Cohen, Bike Attorney for sponsoring each of the events. 2017-2020
The Girls Program:
A full day or weekend of intense fun and mentoring. Designed to support low-income young women 18-24. Road, MTB, Bikepacking and urban commuting disciplines throughout the year. 2018-2019
